Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Canterbury School has been closely monitoring the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) situation. The health and safety of our students, staff, and visitors is our highest priority, and keeping our school community informed is vitally important at this time. We will share updates as we have them on this page. Thank you in advance for your partnership as we work together during this difficult time.
 
MARCH 18 UPDATE

Our first day of remote learning is underway! Please remember that this is a new adventure for all of us. Our community is undeniably strong, and we will work through this together. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our division directors, teachers, and those specifically listed in our remote learning plans if you have any questions as we move forward.
 
Based on new guidance from the Florida Department of Education, all public and private K-12 schools are to remain closed through Wednesday, April 15, 2020. With that being said, our plan is to continue with remote learning through Thursday, April 9, 2020. We will celebrate our Spring Break as planned starting Friday, April 10, 2020, through Sunday, April 19, 2020. Our goal is to resume classes on Monday, April 20, 2020, barring any future recommendations from health and education officials.
 
Thank you for your continued love, support, and flexibility as we navigate these challenging times. We know that everyone is dealing with different situations. If our communications or our plans are overwhelming, we understand. Please let us know, and we will work with your family however we can be most helpful.

PREVENTION AND RESOURCES
The following information has been shared directly from the CDC Website.
The CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask:
    • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
    • Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
